    I put my sways on two weekend ago and Im glad I did. I started with the back first no prob. than I jacked the front and put on stand, crawl under her and GOD DAMN I just got new tires a few months ago thay where already down to the belt. So put the front on and droped her down and call it a day ( I got a late start ). Got my tires comeing in this week and will be put them on this weekend getting alinement done also. Ill post after I can get the thing done, but as of now she is a total differant truck.
    THANKS TO EVERYONE AT SS

    not long at all. probably by yourself, it would take 3 hours and thats on the long end. it shouldnt take you long at all.

    Installed my sway bar set with the help of Iceman, Superwerty and Blackcat and here are my thoughts.

    Pros:
    Looks: Good construction and powdercoat. At first I was sad they only came in red but now I am glad they are red. I love seeing them sparkle at me between the wheelwells.

    Size: Good Lawd they front sway is a beast! Pics do not really showcase was a brute the bar is. Rear while not as robust is still noticeably bigger.

    Cons:
    The rear sway is adjustable. Okay what does that mean? Use the first hole for a "soft" setting and the third hole at the end of the bar for the "firmest"?

    Front bushings. I am not a big guy and didn't have the capability of compressing those. Is that the best option Energy Suspension has? I trimmed some off the flat side of each one but when installed they did not compress evenly. The bushing on top of the bar flattened out while the bottom one barely compressed. Is that normal? Also what side of the bushing goes against the bar? Flat or the one with the lip? I used the stock ones while I researched.


    Results:
    Oh it is nice!! The second I took the first turn I thought "Damn this was money well spent!!". The truck leans so little in turns. IMO this is how the truck should have been from the factory. Merging onto the highway I could not believe how planted the truck felt. I can't wait until I get an alignment and can really play with it. Iceman, Jaeger and Blackcat thought's echoed mine.

    great review, the endlinks are a bear and it seems that you may have not been able to align the bar well enough with the endlink to get it seated all the way. also the nipple end (lack of a better term) goes to the sway it should seat in the hole. <---- that is some dirty stuff right there HAHA

    $450 + shipping :top:

    yeah I plan on spending some money on my truck soon . I'm either giving it you URD for the exhaust or to Shane for the bars lol... but if theyre hard to get ahold of then my decision may just have become easier
